The mosaic consists of a panel showing the upper part of a menorah, along with an inscription mentioning the name El’azar, as well as the names of his father and grandfather. The inscription on the mosaic names El’azar, his father Yudan, and his grandfather Susu or (possibly) Qoso. These men may have been influential members of the local Jewish community at Horvat Kur during the Byzantine period, i. e. , between the 4th and 7th centuries CE. El’azar and his forebears perhaps helped pay for the construction of the synagogue... The menorah, a seven-branched lamp-stand, was one of the most important religious symbols in late ancient Judaism. Inscriptions mentioning persons who made donations to public buildings were also a prominent feature in ancient public buildings, including Jewish synagogues, Christian churches and pagan temples. But the specific combination of names in the Horvat Kur inscription has never been seen before. The menorah (pl. , menoroth), a type of lampstand, had been prominent in the ancient Jewish temple in Jerusalem destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. Later, during the Byzantine period, it became a popular symbol in Jewish synagogues, perhaps a sign... The mosaic at Horvat Kur confirms this general picture, yet also adds some new details. It depicts, for example, an oil lamp on each of the seven branches of the menorah. The lamps are accurate for the Byzantine period, and they are symmetrically arranged around the central lamp. The lamps face the center, with the flame on the side closer to the center. The central lamp has its wick and flame in the middle of the lamp, something that is unknown in the archaeological record. Future studies will examine more closely the peculiar form of this lamp. Unfortunately the menorah is not fully preserved, because a column base was later cut directly through the mosaic when the synagogue underwent renovations. After the conclusion of this summer’s excavations, the mosaic was removed from the site and transferred to the Israel Museum laboratories for conservation and restoration. The 3ha-site of Horvat Kur is located on a hilltop a few kilometers off the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee, in the vicinity of ancient Jewish towns such as Magdala and Capernaum. It is also close to important ancient Christian pilgrimage centers such as Tabgha. Source: www.heritagedaily.com
clickability. translator. UtilContext$userObject@71acc46f | Works from the permanent collection continue to be featured in the Singer Gallery at the Art Museum of South Texas. Louise Nevelson's "Silent Silence," a gift from Edwin Singer is one I have admired for years. Nevelson, a sculptor known for her monumental, monochromatic, wooden wall pieces and outdoor sculptures was born in Czarist Russia. She experimented with early conceptual art using found objects, and in painting and printing before dedicating her lifework to sculpture. Usually created out of wood, her sculptures are often painted in monochromatic black, white or gold and are wall collage reliefs consisting of multiple boxes or compartments that hold abstract shapes and found objects from chair legs to balusters. Nevelson described these works as "environments. The piece in the museum's collection is one of these puzzle-like wall reliefs and has a story that is unique to Corpus Christi. In the 1950s, after meeting Nevelson in New York, Patsy Singer asked Nevelson to come to Corpus Christi and make a piece for her. At first Nevelson ignored her but Patsy asked again and offered a private jet and a stay at her home. Nevelson agreed. Edwin Singer flew Nevelson to Corpus Christi in his private jet and she stayed with the Singer family while she made the piece. The wooden pieces are scraps found on the streets of Corpus Christi. Nevelson, dressed in a black turban, black cape and false mink eyelashes, built and spray painted the found objects in the Singer driveway under an oak tree. The boxes were stacked and assembled by Nevelson in the Singes' music room. Nevelson called herself "the original recycler" due to her extensive use of discarded objects. Today, Nevelson still remains one of the most important figures in 20th-century American sculpture. Another piece, "Interior #1," is Karin Broker's large-scale drawing of a woman watching television rendered in graphite on Formica panel. It has fascinated me for years. Broker uses line, tone and erasure to sculpt forms. The surface is visually rich and reminds me of drawings on school desks. She explores conflicting emotions that exist in relationships as subject matter. Broker, recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts grants in drawing and a Mellon Fellowship, feels that her drawings are like her diaries. Several pieces in the exhibit are best viewed from the catwalk above the Singer. Source: www.caller.com
EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.

"It looked like so many of the incident scenes I encountered over the decades as a firefighter. But it was our house and there was a large debris field from the force of the blast. Shrapnel from the mosaic glass squares flew more than 20 feet over the house from the patio onto the front yard. It's a miracle my wife wasn't killed. The product was defective. if we wanted to buy an explosive we would have gone to the fireworks store, not Big Lots. Following numerous reports of other severe explosion-related injuries, including one death, linked to the defective Indian-made torches, the U. S.
